Give the Gift of Games from Majesco Games
I have several gamers in my family. My husband loves sports games, my nephews like wrestling, our family loves dancing games and I love cooking games. Someone always has a game on their holiday wish list and this holiday thanks to Reverb Games someone in my family will be very happy. Reverb Games sent me three games for inclusion in my Holiday Gift Guide.
If games is on your list this year then be sure to check out these games for the people on your list. I was excited to receive these games because I know it will cover a few people in my family. For my niece there’s Cooking Mama 5. I shared my feature write up on that game last month. I love this game for several reasons but mainly because it’s fun and it involves cooking. My niece already plays other Cooking Mama games so it wasn’t difficult to make this a choice for her. Also in the same line of games is Gardening Mama 2. Perfect for kids or even adults as a relaxing game. For my older sister, my mom or even myself Zumba Fitness World Party is perfect for helping us burn off those holiday calories and stay in shape through the new year. All three of these games would make great gifts for anyone whether it’s one of the games from Mama or the Zumba game anyone receiving these games are sure to be happy and excited. Find out more about Gardening Mama 2 and Zumba Fitness World Party below and read my feature on Cooking Mama here.
